And The Carnage Continues

Are we at all surprised?

Yesterday Local TV 7&4 had a story on the lay off of 43 employees, and the director had only alluded to the reaosns why.  Today the report is much clearer and more direct.  Add to the layoffs a little North of where I am at is the Munson health system which will be facing significant reductions in revenues to the tune of $15 Million averaged EACH YEAR over the next ten years.

Bravo.

    Want to know what I have to say to President and CEO David Zechman, and President and CEO, Edwin Ness? F#@% YOU!

    They're both getting exactly the government they lobbied for.

    Zechman's predecessor, Reezie DeVet, unapologetically argued for medicaid expansion at a Republican woman's luncheon (with Benishek in attendance).

    http://watchdogwire.com/michigan/2013/07/22/medicaid-expansion-opponents-proponents-campaigning/ ... features video of her remarks.

    Just 2 weeks ago, Zechman, who is quite the pol, was gushing (at a huge community luncheon) about how the hospital is the area's largest employer, yada, yada. No hint this was to occur.

      Thanks for the flashback Izzy.

      Most of big medical in Michigan has thought expansion would provide a bit a of a windfall, but as things play out, well..

      GREAT video documentation BTW.

        Hasn't hurt the CEO's personal bottom line, has it?
